15 year slumber



Restoring ol bikes is my passion, after seeing all the cool xs bobbers on this site, me and my friend decided to restore this 1971 xs 650.this bike sat in a shed for 15 years i was told and was begging for somebody to fix her up.


I have redone many bikes over the years but never took any pictures, this is going to fun.more to come soon.
